No humbug.

I wanted to pass out cyber-humbugs to everyone but couldn’t find any, so you’ll just have to suck one of Uncle Joe’s balls instead.

Thanks go to Southern Writer for the E-card. One day I’ll have to work out how to do that.

Merry Christmas, or Happy Tuesday, depending on your personal preferences.

Time for a little whisky, I think.

Interestingly enough, I purchased a tin of these in Fort Worth last year. These were pretty nasty as far as our taste in confections go, so they were shuffled to the bottom of the candy dish and forgotten as tastier offerings were added. Eventually they became stuck to the bottom of the dish and it was necessary to soak it in hot water to get them loose because prying them off would have damaged the dish. I will leave it to your imagination how I explained to my husband and teenage daughter why it was necessary to soak the candy dish to free it from Uncle Joe's balls. Have a glorious Wednesday!

I'm cuckoo for yoglpf!

Uncle Joe's balls taste like mint? Explains Aunt Sue's mouthwash breath.

Or...er...visa versa.

Happy Hogmanay to you, Romulus. I'm a humbug type myself, but I love ringing in the new year, just for the fun of it.

Scary - still alive, I see. You haven't shed your skin yet? I wonder what comes out of a Scary Monster chrysalis?

SW - it could have been worse. Cumberland Sausage comes to mind...

Dr. S.- I've had this tin for years and it's not empty. I think the remainder are now one lump. They're made of sugar with a hint of mint, and they make your teeth hurt. Nice image though -
'What's taking so long in that kitchen?'
'Uncle Joe's balls are stuck to the candy dish. You want to help me get them off?'
'Uh...no, you carry on.'

Anonymous - ask anyone with minty breath if they've been sucking on Uncle Joe's Balls. Then duck.

Dikkii - you get new year before we do, I think. So you get to hit the whisky sooner. Well, I console myself with the knowledge you have to deal with your hangover sooner also. Just think, when you're waking up with a sore head, we in Scotland are just getting under way. I think it's the only truly secular festivity. It doesn't match up with any religion's dates.
